Artistic Statement

My photographic practice is concerned with the ambiguity contained within natural and artificial environments. Throughout my practice I have been interested in the psychological quality contained by interior spaces and outdoor locations. In my work I blur the lines between staged situations and actual scenarios in order to pursue the idea of the unexplained within the existing method of image-making. In my practice I present an otherworldly condition and strive to suspend the belief of the viewers.
